Vajrakilaya Retreat with Khenpo Samdup Rinpoche
Please join us for the weekend retreat of Vajrakilaya, the wrathful manifestation of Vajrasattva, the deity of purification. Dates: Friday Nov. 9, Saturday Nov. 10 and Sunday Nov. 11
The transformation that occurs when the afflictive emotions are subdued with sharp discriminating awareness is the arising of the wrathful deities…The wrathful deities are infuriated with compassion. They are not angry. They are like a mother taming a mischievous child…Their compassion is even more intense than the compassion of peaceful deities. ~ H.E. Garchen Rinpoche ~
In today’s world, anxieties about our personal life and world conditions can disturb our peace of mind. The practice of Vajrakilaya acts as a powerful means to remove personal inner & outer obstacles to peace, happiness and enlightenment while promoting the well-being of the world community as a whole.
Even more auspiciously, we will be practicing Vajrakilaya simultaneously with our sister sangha, Garchen Buddhist Institute, to magnify the impact of our efforts.
